Black female travel bloggers
As a black blogger in a travel and lifestyle niche, I wanted to highlight some of the best black travel bloggers so you can diversify your content.
I love supporting other entrepreneurs, and you will see me do it across all my other blogs.
I believe that black bloggers are not supported enough in the industry, and I will do my best to highlight them as much as I can.
The travel industry definitely lacks diversity and by highlighting the best in the industry, we will only move forward.
As a Canadian travel and lifestyle blogger, I will be highlighting bloggers from around the world.
So who are some of the best black travel bloggers out there?
Before we get started on some of the best black travel bloggers in the world, we did want you to follow us on Instagram for more tips.
